Goals

Yes, it's that time of year again. We all know it as "resolution time" but why don't we call it like it is? For most of us, it's the annual get-in-shape promise we make, then pretty much break, time after time.

No need to be shy about it. Most people do make the lose-weight, get-in-shape January commitment. I know I have. And, most people break the resolution before the snow melts. That's something I've done, too.

Not this year, though. Nope, no huge resolutions for me. Not doing it. No how. No way. No spending hours at the gym. No sweating. No huffing or puffing. No...

Not unless...

Well, when I was in Mexico there was a bit more...ah, shall we say incentive to exercise. A couple of times a day, there were a group of hugely inspiring personal trainers on location. Really. Guys who knew how to make a woman's heart race. They were obviously highly trained professionals who spent years learning about physiology and had perfected the art of training professional athletes. They were incredible, and really very inspiring.

Want to see the training crew? I thought you might, so I brought some photos...

Meet the guys! Do you see how they made all those women in the pool stand up and pay attention? Do you see how they make exercise fun? Do you see...well, do you see their, ah, form?

Note that these moves are not to be attempted by just anyone. Truly, these guys are trained pros who should be watched rather than imitated. Trust me on this. I would never steer you wrong.


I'm thinking that had I stayed in Mexico, I might have made one of those yearly get-in-shape resolutions. But that's not the kind of goal I can reasonably expect to keep here in snowy upstate New York, now is it? After careful consideration and hours spent watching these Mexican athletes, I realize that the kind of dedication and serious commitment it would require to achieve such a goal could only be undertaken in a sunny location. Say, like, Cancun.


Oh, yeah, I'm sure I could get in shape watching this two or three times a day!


So, if you've gone ahead and made one of those exercising goals for 2012, don't hold yourself too strictly to the commitment. Because, really, as you can clearly see, something like that is way beyond most circumstances. Truly, if you plan on keeping your resolution, maybe you should consider hopping on a plane and heading down south to see The Guys. I know they'd be glad to help you reach your fitness goals!


And hey, even if your behind grows rather than shrinks (those margaritas do add up!) it'd be worth it...just to watch the exercise gurus at work, don't you think?


Happy Monday!

Jennifer, they are so inspiring, aren't they? Maybe in Mexico your leg will heal faster...and if not, the view is worth investigating!

Love the bods and bet they've all got rock-hard six-packs! Maybe I need a trip to Cancun too! Bit far from here though.
